My Poetry

I first started to write poetry at high school, usually as part of my English homework, but I began to enjoy it and in later years wrote poems to send to friends and relatives for their birthdays or other special occasions, as well as to express my “inner depths”. Some of my poems are comical and have a narrative style, while others are more reflective, serious and in some cases rather sombre …not quite “dark night of the soul” material, but still expressions of some inner turmoil or soul searching. Anyway, please enjoy… 😀
